thank you

Thank you for the memories

Christmas at a children’s home evokes a sad and grey picture of a child sitting by the window sill staring at the gate in the hope to see a familiar face. Well, that is not the case for the children of Abraham Kriel Bambanani thanks to YOU, the donor who is always there for them….

Piet is doing well after knee operation

“We need your help! Piet (16) injured his knee in a rugby match and needs a knee operation”. You may recall our cry for help for Piet’s sake late last year. And answer, you did! YOU raised over R20 000 towards the operation. Piet has been a member of the Abraham Kriel family since 2011. As…

Piet vorder na knie-operasie

“Ons het u hulp nodig! Piet (16) het sy knie in ‘n rugbywedstryd beseer en benodig ‘n knie-operasie”. U mag die hulpkreet ter wille van Piet laat verlede jaar onthou. En u het daarop ge-reageer.

Blessing in crisis

On 23 November 2016 we heard of the dire financial situation that Abraham Kriel Childcare faced. We pleaded with our donors to help us to provide for the things we needed each day. We prayed and we believed and a miracle unfolded day by day. The difference between what we had saved on expenditure up…

Bread before cake

With this reference to the French revolution Abraham Kriel Childcare faces the reality with which we approach the festive season this year.
